Vijay’s classic GIFs 2007-2011 – 282

 

A Xmas festive edition GIF based on an infamous incident that occurred in Baghdad on the 14th December, 2008. Iraqi journalist Muntadhar al-Zaidi threw both of his shoes at then-United States President George W. Bush, a grave insult in the Arab world. Bush was attending a press conference with Iraqi government officials at the time. Al-Zaidi was recorded as castigating the president of the US as a war criminal. The former president dodged the flight of both shoes, which narrowly missed then Iraqi PM, Nouri al-Maliki who was in attendance. The scene, caught on international TV, became a rich source of inspiration for many memes in the days after.

A chicken’s Christmas

 

I’ve read before that the colour red is super interesting to chickens or something. Like they will peck and eat anything red and it’s not unheard of for a chicken to get an injury like a cut and then having the entire coup basically attack and eat the chicken leaving the farmer to discovers a pile of bones, blood and feathers. They make chicken blinders to try and stop this.
